W: Waiter, can you come here for a second, please?
M: What's the problem, madam?
W: This soup is cold.
M: I'm sorry.I'll bring you some hot soup.
M: Have you got any plans for New Year's Day?
W: I've been invited over to my friend's house.
M: How do you like this suit for your new job?
W: Well, the style is fine. But you might need to reconsider the choice of color.
W: Isn't Mary a beautiful bride?
M: Yes, she is, indeed. John looks very happy, too.
M: Maria, do you think it's useful to study English abroad?
W: Certainly. But it costs too much. In fact, if we do our best, we can also become great English speakers in our country.
M: Uh... you just called the police. Before we can help you, we need to check on a couple of things. Could you describe the man who robbed you in the street in a bit more detail, please?
W: Yes. He had dark skin and short brown hair.
M: Did you notice his clothing?
W: Uh... he was wearing a white T-shirt but I can't remember what his trousers looked like.
M: Was he wearing jeans?
W: Let me think... Oh, I don't remember at all.
M: OK. And he looked old?
W: No, very young. I think he is in his twenties.
M: Well, fine. If you remember any other information, please tell us immediately. We'll contact you in the near future.
W: OK. Thank you very much.
M: Mary, you'll never guess who I met at the cafeteria. Julia Swan.
W: You mean our former monitor in high school?
W: How is she doing? I still remember how excellent she was as chairman of the Students' Union.
M: She graduated from Fudan University and then got her master's degree at Stanford University and found a job in an accounting company in New York after graduation. But she quit her job several months ago and moved back to Shanghai.
W: Oh, why?
M: She said she was bored with working under high pressure and she wanted to make a contribution to our country.
W: So what is she doing now?
M: She gives art lessons at Fudan University, her old school. And she asked us to visit her if we are free.
W: Oh, I'd love to.
